Does this not strike anyone as similar to the new labour of 1997 latching onto the 'brit-pop' vibe that was spreading around Britain? At the end of the day we youth are a huge untapped market of voting potential and anything politicians can do to relate to us and encourage us to vote all the better. Having said that I do agree with you Alex, it is so blatantly embarassing and conjures up images of your aunty at christmas with her 'yes I do like those big black peas...'(B.E.P.s in case you wondered!) It seems the work of a PR rep that couldn't quite be bothered to find out what would get us voting and instead tries to get the politicians 'relating' to us. Idiotic, wrong and as Richard says a blatantly just trying to gain votes without focusing on issues that matter to us!

When it comes to politicians, I would vote for anyone that could make me passionate about their cause. The problem at the moment is that, as students, we're only reached out to during local elections where they crave our votes before ignoring any issue we might have for the next four years.

My bad, good spot.

However my argument remains the same, and they have become (even if it is mistakenly) synonymous with MySpace, which may be one of the reasons that Ming singled them out (as well as thir fame, youth and catchy northern sound he claims to be so keen on).

Very pedantic point but...

the arctic monkeys didnt begin on my space at all, indeed it would seem they were oblivious to the whole thing:

'The other day someone said to us, "I looked at your profile on Myspace." I said, "I don't even know what Myspace is." [When we went number one in England] we were on the news and radio about how Myspace has helped us. But that's just the perfect example of someone who doesn't know what the fuck they're talking about. We actually had no idea what [Myspace] was.'

Maybe that says more about today's youth?
